RESEARCH THEMES PROJECTS
4D CT imaging

Non-ECG-Gated 4D CT imaging technique for diagnosis of carpal joint instability

  • To detect 2D dynamic instability of wrist while the hand is in periodic motion
Flexor Tendon Novel Flexor Tendon Repair Technique Using Titanium button - A comparative biomechanical study
  • To investigate the biomechanical properties (e.g. tensile strength, gap force, gliding resistance) of a new flexor tendon repair using a low profiled titanium button on cadaveric finger tendons
A novel synthetic bioresorbable tendon graft capable of sustained growth factor delivery for the treatment of flexor tendon injuries
  • To design and develop a novel composite bioresorbable biomaterial scaffold, with a carrier medium embedded to be infused with growth factors for sustained release in the healing of flexor tendon injuries.
  • Tenocyte proliferation, differentiation, and collagen formation will be investigated in vitro
Hand Grip Normative date for concurrent grip-torque and pinch-torque hand strength of older adults- A novel approach
  • To determine how peak and sustained hand strengths differ with age, diseases and ability to perform activities of daily living
Compression Screws The effect of gap on the compression of scaphoid fractures - A biomechanical study using headless compression screws
  • To investigate the effect of a gap between scaphoid bone fragments during fixation of displaced scaphoid fractures, on compression force generated by different headless compression screws
